Tell me how this makes sense? Those that are taken out of the wild are done so illegally to begin with. This is only going to make it harder to work with those already in captivity.

>>in case anyone hasn't heard, Burmese Stars have just been approved for listing as CITES I, and as of sometime this summer of fall, no more purchase or shipping interstate without a federal permit. Given that the species is essentially extinct in the wild, but thousands being bred in captivity, it's long overdue.
